Ngadi Smart is a Sierra Leonean visual artist and designer based between London, U.K and Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. Her practice comprises illustration, photography, and design. She also works as a mixed media artist, primarily in the form of collage art.
In her Illustration work, she is motivated by the representation of minorities, highlighting cultural identity and racial discrimination, as well as themes on Feminism and gender roles. She deconstructs society's mainstream preconceived views of what the definitions of "normal", "beautiful", and "right" are.
She will exhibit the series of "Documentary | The Faces of Abissa” (2016), “The Queens of Babi” (2020), "Metamorphosis Series" (2020) , her latest photo collage series.
This year we are inviting the artist Ngadi Smart to collaborate with our local community in the Demachi Masugata Shopping Arcade, Kyoto. She will create unique work that echoes the historical and contemporary images of the community.
